Really, I don't mind Mondays so much, but this week is going to be different. Hubby and I have to be at the hospital at 5:30am for his 7:30 surgery. It's about a half hour away so you can imagine the hour I'll have to be up to be there on time. This is when a Bible verse I memorized years ago comes in handy....Your adornment must not be merely external....but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the eyes of the Lord. I Peter 3:3-4.
So while we're going through the paperwork, waiting, surgical procedure, and recovery I won't surrender to the first human instinct of being impatient and irritable, but will be calm and at peace. Of course this doesn't happen through my own strength but with God's guiding hand.
After you've read this would you please pray that Hubby will have an easy time through the surgery and recovery with a minimum of pain. If all goes as it should, he'll be his old lovable self in a couple of days.
UPDATE: Everything went better than expected. The only after effect was having a headache from missing his morning coffee. That's been remedied so all is well. Thanks for you prayers and thoughts.
